What will make you happy?

With game one of the ALDS in the books, and game two coming up in a few hours, We’d like to know what you will consider a success for the Twins in this series. Obviously, we all want to see the Twins win it all, but some of us might look at the context, and be satisfied with something less.

Will you be happy if they win one and get the playoff monkey off their back?

Would it be two wins, and forcing a game five?

Maybe you’re happy that they just made it to the playoffs—that would be justified based on preseason expectations

Or, perhaps you won’t be happy unless the Twins can win three games and the ALDS.
